1/3. Community-acquired bacteremic cellulitis caused by acinetobacter baumannii.

    acinetobacter baumannii is rarely encountered as a pathogen causing community-acquired skin and soft tissue infection. A 79-year-old man had a fever for 3 days accompanied by pain and swelling over the left leg around an old scar caused by a dog bite 10 years ago. Two sets of blood cultures and a wound culture all yielded A. baumannii. The patient's condition deteriorated initially but recovered completely after 3 weeks of meropenem treatment. This case suggests that A. baumannii should be included among pathogens with the potential to cause complicated skin infection in the community.

His postoperative course was complicated by severe sternal wound infection with Acinetobacter species requiring extensive debridement and reconstruction with a pectoralis major flap.

3/3. acinetobacter calcoaceticus infection following a dog bite.

    A frequent complication of dog bite wounds is bacterial infection. The choice of antibiotics is based upon the most likely organisms. Failure to achieve wound healing suggests that an uncommon organism(s) is present and should lead the clinician to culture the wound. A case of acinetobacter calcoaceticus infection following a dog bite is described.
